my boyfriend has gonorrhea. I have been with only him for 5 years. He doesn't believe me. He really believes I gave it to him. He had sex last summer with god knows who. He was tested in August and it was negative. His symptoms showed up 2-3 weeks ago. I am certain he has been with only me since August. Its Christmas Eve. He has broken up with me and I am alone. He won't believe me that I have been with only him. There HAS to be another explaination. BTW I have had symptoms for a couple months but thought it was a UTI because I have had a hysterectomy 1. Could he have contracted the disease in August and be just showing symptoms now? 2. Could the test have been false negative if taken too soon after exposure?

For about a month, I have had occasional itching on the underside of my penis and an occasional itching inside the head. It is not constant, and typically, the itching inside does not last very long, does not hurt, and seems to not occur if I am sure I am fully hydrated. I have tested positive in the past for Gonorrhea (about 6 months ago) and was treated. Could this be related? Should I see my PMD? Advice?

My 21 year old boyfriend was treated for chlamydia and gonorrhea about 2 days ago and still complains of stinging and itching after urination and I'm having an unusual amount of white discharge lately, no smell. What could be wrong? Could it be something other than chlamydia? Could it be warts or herpes?

doctor1 MD

I had unprotected sex 3+ weeks ago and since then have had an ongoing tingling sensation just under the head of my penis. I was tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea negative. The pain usually subsides when I sleep and comes back once I wake up. It seems the pain is mostly linked to when I am sitting. There is no burning sensation while peeing.

Well, this all started about 7-8 weeks ago. The first thing that happened was vomiting one Monday evening. It was the worst vomiting I had ever experienced. The next day, I woke up with horrible pain in my upper right flank. I went to my PCP, and she thought that it had to something with my gallbladder, so she sent me for an ultrasound of my gallbladder, right kidney, liver and pancreas. That came back fine, so she sent me to a GI to figure out why I was vomiting(about once a week) and diarrhea(three to four times daily). I had an upper and lower scope performed. I was diagnosed with Barrett s, hiatal hernia and IBS. Also, when they did the ultrasound they did find swollen lymph nodes in my colon(mesenteric adenitis). Meanwhile, this whole time I am experiencing horrible fatigue, heated face, elevated body temperature(99.5-100), pain all over my right side and back. When my GI told me that what he diagnosed me with did not explain the fatigue and low grade fever, I once again had to go back to my PCP. Let me tell you; I have been so emotional since this all started. I am crying for no reason, I feel like I have constant brain fog. So, when my PCP came into the room(she is also an OBGYN), and I begged her to make me feel better, and she pretty much told me there was nothing wrong with me, I started crying. How dare she! Anyway, back to the story. She decided to run some more blood tests and do a urine analysis. So, she said all of the blood tests came back okay. Then, today, I get a call saying there was bacteria growing in my urine, and she wanted to know what my symptoms were so she could just diagnose me with a UTI. Here s my concern: I have had several UTI s in my life, most of which traveled to my kidney. I have had Gonorrhea and Clymadia when I was 21 and naieve, but I took antibiotics and tested negative for it a later date. So, now she just wants to throw antibiotics at me, and I have been sick for almost two months. Could this just have been a UTI this whole time? Also, I do have the pain in my upper right flank as well in the pelvic area. Thank you.
